Universe – Life
Tina J.S.-Music is My Life, asked me today in the comment section about what inspired me? So this Post is for you Tina.
Love inspires me. Beauty inspires me. Bravery inspires me. The human spirit of never giving up inspires me. Tenderness inspires me. Happiness inspires me. Caring people making a difference inspires me. Thoughtfulness inspires me.
A smile inspires me. A mother and/or father caring for their family inspires me. Children Inspire me. The aged and elderly inspire me. a young adult woman or man just starting to explore their world inspires me.
The changing seasons inspire me. Nature inspires me. Animals inspire me.
Life inspires me!
For some reason, unknown to me, I’ve had more close calls with death than any 10 people I know.Up close and personal close calls where I thought there would be no tomorrow. And I’ve dealt with pain and surgeries and months, years of coping with same. Raising children as a single mom and messing up again and again sometimes making very poor decisions in the process.
My life experiences shaped who I am. And who I am is just one person, a female who has survived and is very grateful for every morning that I wake up and there is a new day to be in. I take nothing for granted but am hopeful that something that I say or do can positively impact others.
My way of saying “Thank you” to the universe for allowing me to live another day, somtimes in the face of great adversity. So Tina, in summation …
I am inspired by Life, love and all people (without exception) who are each very special and unique – just like you Tina,
With much love,
All life – Sacred and Wonderful!
I thank with all my heart, every single blogger that enriches my life everyday sharing with me so many of the things that I love.
I have definitely had days like this! Anyone else?
Have fun on your last day of 2012. Make it a good but safe one!
“Feel The Rain”
We all have them. Those lonely days. Today is not one of my lonely days, I’m having a very good day today which actually reminded me of years past when at this time of the year I would sometimes feel this way. So I thought I’d post about the positive side of lonely days!
“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet!” Bob Dylan
They can be “okay” days if we are reflective during these times. Be “in the moment”. Experience the melancholy. Understand that those feelings will pass, they are helping you to emotionally vent that which you have been unable to adequately express or release in any other way.
On life’s lonely days recognize them for what they are – a brief passage of time where your loving heart is being made aware of it’s sadnesses and understands the importance of that recognition so that you can love more fiercely and with greater conviction.
You may sometimes feel lonely but you are never alone. You are one of many and We are loved!
Thanks for your visit today,
Celebrate the new year with as much diversity in your life as you can!
It’s a very good thing!
Here are three extremely short videos made by people just like you and I.
The first two videos are by talented young people offering their own fresh approach to diversity.
I think we can learn from that too! Enjoy, learn and be inspired!
Happy New Year,
If I hear just one more …
When I saw this beautiful horse with a blonde mane I felt it a moral imperative to post this piece about blonde jokes. Although I’m guessing this horse hasn’t heard as many “blond jokes” as I have (lots and lots), so here’s a few to lighten your load today but first a disclaimer:
As an official blonde … I approve these jokes! Since we’re really amazingly intelligent (I say with great and humble modesty), these jokes don’t really bother us – much! I will add that if you laugh too long and too hard I will be able to find you!
Locked Out of Car
Two blondes lock their keys in the car. One of the blondes tries to break into the car while the other one watches. Finally the first blonde says “Darn, I can’t get in the car!” The other blonde replies “keep trying – it looks like it’s going to rain and the top is down”.
Keeping a Blonde Busy
Q: How do you keep a blonde busy for hours? A: Write “Please turn over” on both sides of a piece of paper.
The interesting thing about “blonde jokes” is that they exist at all! Hair color is not a determining factor for intelligence for either women or men and yet the jokes abound. Psychologists have not been able to come up with a satisfactory reason for the why of this. As for myself, how I feel about being a blonde is summed up quite easily – “viva la difference” -or it works for me!
Thanks for visiting, it is a very good thing to not take yourself too seriously. Sometimes laughing at yourself is a very good thing, have a great day and a better tomorrow!
I’m guessing you’ve figured out by now if you visited my blog a few times or more that I’d rather talk about love than almost anything else! Too true, Most especially unconditional love.
So … I thought you might find this short video interesting and inspirational ~ Enjoy!
Thanks for the visit, oh and fyi as one human being to another – I love you with all my heart – unconditionally – the only way to go!
Okay, so occasionally the creative muse must take over, and therefore it did! The results below. Fan your face if you need to!
A Craving for Passion
Begins a feeling deep within
A rhythm, vibes, a burning
Passion passion come to me
I crave, I crave, I’m yearning.
A sensuous warmth of feeling
Invading me, oh please
Passion, passion come to me
I’m seeking my release.
A whimpering song of longing
A moan more like a sigh,
Passion, passion come to me
Please me where I lie.
The heat upon my silken skin
Evening breezes cannot cool
Passion, passion come to me
Please do not be cruel.
My body aching with desire
I beg with want of you
Passion, passion come to me
I need you, yes I do.
Thanks for the visit, something a little different from me but fun none the less, I hope you enjoyed!
The Trusting Heart
Now that’s a tough word isn’t it? TRUST!
I know it is.
I think that most of us have had issues with that one, both in the past and present.
Quite a difficult thing to maneuver around. Lack of trust does seem to get in the way of many things.
It is so extremely hard to trust sometimes, but not trusting can become an anchor that weighs you down.
Have you ever had a child leap off of something towards you and say “Catch me”? You barely have time to acknowledge their request when your arms go out to catch them. They trust you.
They haven’t learned any painful lessons yet that can make it harder to trust so unconditionally.
Brutal lessons in life can take innocent belief away. But for your own health and well being and as difficult as it may be – Let go, forgive (as you can and then move on towards the trusting heart!
I believe in you!
It’s just about the time of year when once again people start talking about New Year resolutions – things that they are going to change or improve upon. I have always been fascinated by this.
It’s a great deal like buying an expensive piece of exercise equipment and then it just sits there in the corner and varied excuses start happening for all the reasons why the equipment isn’t being used.
Resolutions to improve your life only work if you follow through. Easy to have good intentions, easy to make a list – quite a bit harder to get the job done. As it is for most worthwhile things in life!
So here’s a solution for your New Year’s Resolution – if you’re making any that is.
Dream big, but resolve to have a short list that is doable, small steps (successes) added to more small steps (successes) lead to remarkable goals being achieved.
Your New Years Resolution: Small List – Big Determination.
“The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success … but significance! Then even the small steps along your path will take on greater meaning!” ~ Markesa Yeager
“Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.” ~ William R Inge
